said in charlotte. >> the romney/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle class families with a child, one or more children, by an additional $2,000 a year. all kidding aside, with all the boos, we can stop all that mularkey, this is deadly earnest, man, this is deadly earnest. how they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts? >> a tweet from mitt romney says this, agreed with @joe biden, the middle class has been buried last four years which is why we need a change in november. let's bring in chief political analyst gloria borger. channel in vice president joe biden right now. what was he trying to say obviously didn't come across as he clearly would like. >> well, what he was clearly trying to say and the obama campaign was quick to point this out is that what he was trying to say is that the middle class was buried urntd george w. bush and that's what started the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has st

interesting is, yes, you have sort of the official romney/ryan line that mitt romney can't form a complete sentence and barack obama is cicero and it's going to be very hard. but what christie said is what you're hearing from people behind the scenes. there was a piece with a lot of anonymous quotes from romney aides saying, we need a game changer. i think the good news for romney is if you look back to those primary debates that you were talking about, he did the best in the debates where it seemed like he absolutely had to win. so the south carolina debate, seemed like he was on cruise control, sort of playing a prevent defense against newt gingrich. but then once gingrich won south carolina, he turned it on. the next couple of debates, everybody talked about gingrich master debater and romney won. he does have some debating skills. >> he's good under pressure. and the good part is, he's under pressure. >> here's the historical problem with that, there's very little correlation between debate performance and changing the dynamic of a race. you have to search wide and far to find

emerging now on whether paul ryan, the vice presidential nominee, has actually helped romney's efforts to win the white house or wound up hurting romney's efforts to win the white house. where do you see it? >> well, i've been a big alarmist on the ryan question from the beginning. i thought it was a mistake to choose him. i thought it was a mistake even before choosing him to bolt this campaign to the ryan plan. the romney campaign needs to be about jobs and growth. the decision to make this campaign about medicare and medicaid which is what you do when you adopt the ryan plan much less put ryan on the ticket is a big mistake. i think the campaign is really suffering for it. >> you think democrats down ballot as they say, senatorial candidates, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security. so

the previous eight years all the policies that congressman ryan voted for and governor romney said he supported, all those policies in a mere eight years, they doubled the national debt. they doubled the national debt from what they inherited in 2001. >> he's right on that because the debt was about $5 trillion when president bush took office, more than $10 trillion when he left office. i think he's referring to the two tax cuts that weren't paid for, the precipitation drug benefits that weren't paid for, two wars, iraq and afghanistan that weren't paid for that caused so much, at least 80% or 90% of that debt. >> well, you know, i actually don't think the wars caused added as much, but a lot of stuff did. here's a fact as well, yes, president bush left office with a double national debt. here's another fact the democrats don't like. president obama has added more to the national debt than all other presidents from george washington to george w. bush combined. that too is a fact. and also when george bush was president joe biden actually voted for some of those things. and remember in

mailing just this week. >> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen is credited with making the iowa gops 1 millionth voter call. >> i'm calling with a brief three-question survey with issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she is doing her part as republicans play early voting catchp. >> we're working hard here and rolling up our sleeves and putting our boots on and we're going at it. we still have time. >> and as republicans play that game of catch up, wolf, one thing that helps them, they have parity when it comes to statewide voter registration. the biggest help when mitt romney turned in a debate performance next week. they say young people. they understand the energy, the enthusiasm is down from the historymaking year in 2008. if they can get those votes in the bank early, all the better. >> if they can get the base to turn out, the republican base, the democratic party base, but the undecided, the independents, i take it, correct me if i'm wrong, john. t

ryan as his running mate who was for the bailout. that's a consistent theme that romney doesn't have the right message. they do think they're losing. they do think because they have a strong ground game there there is still time to turn around. >> you make your point in the article that a lot of people think this thing will tighten as we get closer to election day. >> right. >> the other thing though is governor john kasich who had been promoting the ohio economic recovery even though he's a republican and trying to get mitt romney elected. romney of course has been talking down the economy because that's good for him. let's talk about that. >> yeah. that's a major complication. jim mengsed in his piece. the unemployment rate in ohio is 7.1%, in columbus it's about 6%. that's a bellwether area. stop after stop john kasich goes around the state and says ohio is booming, ohio is rocking. that gives headaches to people in washington saying hey, this conflicts with our message. there's ongoing friction and there has been for months between the romney campaign and their staff on the groun

candidates, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security. so democrats are along the ryan budget plan. by putting him on the ticket i think the republicans took a huge risk because they have to explain exactly what his budget would do to domestic program and future growth. and of course many people understand that the ryan plan it doesn't add up. the math is just not there. >> i looked, david, at the president's schedule today, president obama's schedule. he's here in washington, d.c. 45 h received a dabr with senior advisors at 10:15. 4:20, which now he's out there on themp trail. he's got an efbt at 4:20, 6:05, another campaign fund raising event, one at 8:25 tonight. but he had until 4:00 basically he was in the white house, as you know, benmin netanyahu's beenn new rkll day. i'm told if he'ot c

social security. he's hurting seniors. what romney and ryan are proposing will fulfill our promise to seniors for their retirement security. so that's -- you exempt those people out. i'm talking about the number of people who have gone on disability or have gone on welfare and i'm talking about obama gutting the work requirement on those programs. that's what i'm talking about. and i think voters are not only smart enough to understand that, they are living this life. i standby that. not the distortion of it. and i know what mitt romney means. he knows what he means and so do americans. >> okay. well, let's just listen to a new ad that is out now from the mitt romney campaign and see how he's delivering a new message to the american voters. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassio

ryan has obstructed that plan and governor romney has opposed it. ultimately, i think, youave a choice between two plans here. the fact is that the president a plan and you saw that two-minute spot and talking about how we will create the sustaining jobs from middle class and create a million manufacturing jobs and reduce our dependents on foreign oil and college tuition under control and governor romney still hasn't explained how those $5 trillion tax cuts targeted towards the wealthiest americans would unleash job creation. we pass tax cuts for the wealthiest in 2001 and 2003 and led to a slower pace of job creation than you've seen over the past few years. >> you know after four years or moving on four years of his presidency the president still today saying it will ta a few more years to fix the problem, especially in a place like virginia and some other key battleground states. that has to be a tough sell right now for people who are still unemployed and they need a job today, they don't need it in a few more years. >> well, and that's why we had an honest conversation lout

president. >> paul ryan will get his chance. >> if you endorsed budget, please explain to us how that works. >> well, at least there's a budget. >> he was for and then against it. >> so how should romney answer? our debate all this week has been your argument is he should avoid substance at all costs. so how should romney answer her question then? >> the good news is that the rules don't allow him to speak more than a few seconds. >> actually, two minutes i think. >> so move on to the next issue, the next issue. we're looking for details. you are not going to get details tonight. >> let's be clear, there's 15-minute segments. they have two minutes to respond to the question and then jim lehrer's going to narrate the back and forth. there should be enough time. >> one thing i want to say though is that this is going to be for a bunch of young americans their first chance to vote. a lot of the young americans didn't watch the conventions, they had summer vacation. now they're going to be tuning in. what i think they should be talking about is what are they going to do for young people?
